Located in Barnes, London, this project rejuvenates an existing Victorian terrace house, which had lost its character due to previous alterations.
The key change made was to open up the rear living spaces to the garden, achieved by lowering the rear floor levels to create a seamless connection with the outdoors. A new timber-lined opening was introduced to link the front and back of the house, blending old and new elements. Natural light was a central consideration in the design, with spaces strategically arranged to make the most of daylight throughout the day.
Bespoke joinery was used throughout the house, linking all the rooms together and leading out to the garden. The owner's Scandinavian furniture collection was key to the project, influencing the design of the new staircase, built in seating to the dining area and oak lined ceiling spaces.
